5 cups water
2 1/2 cups sugar
2 1/2 cups lemon juice
Heat the water and sugar in a pan over medium heat, stirring until the sugar is dissolved. Remove from heat and allow to cool for 20 minutes.
Add lemon juice.
Pour lemon/sugar mixture into a large pitcher and add equal parts water.
Pour over ice filled glasses and enjoy!
This will make approx 16 8oz servings, which is what I wanted for the party yesterday. Halve it for smaller groups.
